Finite element code allows modeling of more complex geometry than with their finite
||Automatic Mesh Generation
SVOffice™ makes use of fully
automatic mesh generation. This allows the modeler to concentrate on the conceptual model rather than the details of the
finite element method. The solver makes use of tetrahedral elements which can be wedged into tight corners to allow pinching
out of layers.
||Automatic Mesh Refinement
SVOffice™ remains the only regional
groundwater package in the world that offers fully automatic mesh refinement. The mesh refinement can be based off of any
particular solution variable. This allows for enhanced stability and accuracy in solutions particularly where high gradients
SVFlux™ was formulated from the start to
handle true unsaturated flow. Advanced solution algorithms make the package ideal for handling the nonlinearities associated
with highly nonlinear unsaturated flow.
The tetrahedral elements used by the final solver are
truly 3D and are generated in all three dimensions. The mesh is not developed on a surface and then extruded through a model.
This allows true representation of layers which pinch out at certain points in the model to zero thickness.
SVFlux™ and ChemFlux™.
Radioactive decay or density-dependant solutions are available.
SVFlux™ Professional and SVHeat™ Professional
allow the calculation of geo-thermal sub-surface heat movement. Both Conductive and Convective heat flow
solutions are available. Ideal for borehole thermal energy storage systems (BTES).
Recharge rates be accurately calculated through
rigorous climate coupling with SVFlux™. Data from weather stations can be input and exact evaporation and
recharge rates can be calculated.
